With four days off, I was able to watch fireworks with the nephew (he was not 100% on board with things blowing up)


Contemplate the microcosm…

…and the macrocosm

..and the city I live in (it was a two-hike weekend)IMG_0848

And put in a new flowerbed against the foundation (with the help of my parents)


I was also able to sew a blouse, finish piecing the quilt top, cut out another tank top, finish an old sweater, clean the house, run errands,  and stuff the back of the car with bark mulch, peat moss, and gravel. It’s a good thing I didn’t have FIVE days off–I probably would have been able to take over the world.
